Chapter XVII

Daphne - A Natural Tracker


Once more, the familiar surge of the Earth ran through her veins as Daphne dug her fingers into the rich soil. Closing her eyes, she gave herself to her senses and felt a wave of knowledge wash over her. Her mind raced with new information as images played out in her head.

A small shack, a few bushes...white rabbits prancing about in the woods, vines then fences.


The image sharpened as she smiled to herself, focusing further. The sight came to life and Daphne felt herself in the moment as she took it in. A large and spacious backyard opening up to the marvelous view of the rich house.

The compound was huge, give or take a few acres. Upon it was a magnificent, almost castle-like mansion. She could hear faint voices from somewhere inside...soft and airy.

"Where's your brother gone off to now?"

"I'm going to kill Camden when he comes back."

Eyes flashing open, Daphne's smile widened as she looked up at the boy in front of her. He had a quizzical expression written across his face as he stared back, wondering what in the world was going on.

Smiling to herself at her new discovery, she said, "I can take you home."

The End
